Dr. CODDINGTON of Grace Episcopal church in the presence of a large number of friends. Pink and white formed the color scheme. The wedding march from Loherngrin and Mendelsohn's Wedding March were played before and after the ceremony. Miss Harriet BATTERSON, sister of the bride, was maid of honor and was gowned in pink and carried pink roses; Miss Fannie TRUE, sister of the groom, was first bridesmaid, , the others being Miss Christina REED and Miss Doris Beardsley of Syracuse and Miss Marguerite ROWE of Rochester. All wore point d'esprit over white silk and carried pink roses. A striking feature of the bridemaids' costumes appear in the coronet wreaths of ribbon which matched in color the wide pink sashes worn with the gowns. The bride's gown was of white mousseline with collar of duchess point lace. She wore a veil fastened with a chaplet of orange blossoms and carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses. The groom's present was a magnificent diamond sunburst. Mrs. BATTERSON'S gown was of violet voile and Mrs. TRUE was in pearl grey chiffon and satin, made over silk of the same tint.
Hugh JENNINGS of Cortland, George GALLUP of Auburn, Hamilton BARNES of Syracuse and John PEMBERTON of Owego, were ushers. Ralph STILLWELL of Syracuse, was best man. Miss BATTERSON, preceded by the others of the bridal party passed up the aisle meeting the groom and his attendants at the altar. She was given away by her mother.
Following the ceremony, a reception was given at the home of the bride, 743 South Crouse Ave., to the immediate friends and relatives. At the bride's table, much merriment was occasioned over a cake containing a gold ring, a thimble and a piece of money, all of which were regarded as having grave significance for those to whom they fell in the distribution. Many out of town guests were present. There were many beautiful gifts received, that of the groom's father, being a chest of silver.
Mr. and Mrs. TRUE have gone to New York and will visit Boston before they return, when they will be at home, after June 15th, at 207 Comstock Avenue, Syracuse. A clever incident connected with the going away, occurred when Mr. and Mrs. TRUE hastening into the carriage drawn up before the door, passed rapidly through, into one on the other side, and though the first was followed only a few blocks, Mr. and Mrs. TRUE had time to get safely on board the train beyond reach of the rice and confetti throwing brigade. They still had the placards to contend with, however. A number of these had been prepared in advance and bore the inscription "Just Married! Any little attention shown these young people will be heartily appreciated by their friends." These were distributed among the fellow passengers.
Among the pre-nuptial functions given for Miss BATTERSON, were a kitchen shower, a handkerchief shower and a linen shower. Miss Fannie TRUE entertained the bridal party at dinner, Wednesday evening. Here too the color scheme was pink and white. Miss BATTERSON present her bridesmaids with pearl necklaces and Mr. TRUE gave the young men scarf pins set with pearls. As the family has again taken possession at "Ingleside", it is expected that Mr. and Mrs. TRUE will visit here in the summer.
